Do I Have A Problem With Love Avoidance?
Love Avoidance describes a dysfunctional relationship pattern that some of us repeatedly find ourselves falling into. It describes a pattern in which we find ourselves avoiding real emotional intimacy with our partners through a number of behaviours.
For those of us in a love avoidance or codependency cycle, it can sometimes be extremely difficult to see or admit that there is a problem, especially because these issues can be entangled with intimacy, love, fear and shame.
